Baby Money and her backing band, The Down Payments, are Rust Belt musicians that perform original rock n roll with a soulful, vintage twist. Baby Money is primarily based in Chicago, but The Down Payments hail from Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and throughout the Midwest. Heavily influenced by 60s girl-groups, gospel, rhythm n blues and early rock n roll, Baby Money writes heartfelt songs punctuated by tight vocal harmonies, reverb-soaked electric guitar, motown bass lines, punchy drums and bittersweet keys.

With recording, mixing and mastering complete on her first full length record, In Memory of John Doe, she and the whole band are preparing to tour this summer in support of the release. Baby Money and her newly assembled Down Payments are refining the live show, and working to promote the new album after a successful release on May 30th in Chicago. A few mini-tours are scheduled this fall around the Rust Belt and Midwest. Keep those eyes and ears peeled

Pamela Maurer (aka Baby Money) is a songwriter hailing from Durango, Colorado. She grew up playing piano and singing in the choir at her small town church, but it wasn't until her Detroit-born father introduced her to Motown, Stax and the like that she began to fall in love with the sound of the city and the music of the 1960s.

In 2003, she relocated to the Windy City and started singing, stomping, and making a whole lot of noise. She has written songs for various other groups, composed music for theatre, and for several years lent her voice and washboard playing for The Barehand Jug Band, winners of the 2010 National Battle of the Jug Bands. She went on to form one half of the rhythm and revival duo Poor Elvis, and has toured extensively in the midwest.

On returning to Chicago from the last leg of touring, Pamela decided to start her own project, with the name Baby Money. After inviting friends from other roots-inspired bands to join her, she began writing and started to perform. As the sound grew, she traded in her ukelele and washboard for a guitar, and with the help of her musician friends, finally formed her backing band, the Down Payments.

Baby Moneys debut EP and zine, Movers! Shakers! Money Makers! along with a collection of singles, Little Red Vinyl was released in May, 2013. Her first full length album, IN MEMORY OF JOHN DOE is set for release on May 30th, 2014, at the Hideout Inn Chicago.
